We are super excited that you guys are interested in becoming future teachers and educators and want to help make sure that the process is as smooth as possible. We plan to post more information regarding different program highlights, what classes to take, and what you can expect here at BYU throughout the summer! We can't wait for you guys to join the McKay team this Fall!
We thought we would introduce ourselves so that you can feel comfortable talking to us when we see each other on campus! ;)

My name is Mary Gillespie. I'm a senior majoring in Elementary Education. I love to run and play sports and am an avid Harry Potter fan. I decided to be a teacher because I love helping others understand new ideas. I want to help children see that learning can be fun! I plan on teaching 3rd or 4th grade when I graduate.
My name is Nicole Kline. I am a senior majoring in Special Education with an emphasis in severe and profound disabilities. I started volunteering in special education classrooms in high school and fell in love with it. I have a passion for seeing students' potential and helping them to achieve great things!
My name is Taylor Baird. I'm a senior majoring in Early Childhood Education. I'm from Maryland and I love all things Disney! I decided to be a teacher because I want to help shape lives in a meaningful way, and teaching kids is how I felt I could do that best. I plan on teaching Kindergarten or 1st grade when I graduate!
My name is Taylon Mann. I am a senior majoring in Elementary Education. Folk music and dance is my jam! I have performed American Folk music and dance all over the world. Learning new skills and learning about other cultures are my passions. Teaching others, especially naturally curious young minds, allows me to spread my love of learning to others!
My name is Terrika and I am a physical education major at BYU. I am from Middleton, Idaho and love anything sports related. I love being outside, playing games, and being active. Spending time with my family and friends while doing the things that I love is my favorite pass time.
